Background Increased levels of selectins, adhesion molecules, hs-CRP and homocysteine are considered important as indicators of atherosclerosis. There is a significant amount of evidence that high LDL-C levels are a risk factor for coronary artery disease, whereas the relevance of isolated triglycerides is controversial. The present study aims to compare the levels of homocysteine, hs-CRP, E-selectin, sP-selectin, VCAM-1, ICAM-1 in patients with isolated hypertriglyceridemia and polygenic hypercholesterolemia.
